Molex introduces capacitive and metal touch switches

August 12, 2015 - Molex introduces capacitive and metal touch switches that offer excellent immunity to environmental conditions, including resistance to electromagnetic interference (EMI). Available in rigid and flexible substrates including polyester, polyimide and PC boards, Molex capacitive and metal touch switches offer a range of functional and value-added features including custom backlighting, discrete buttons, linear sliders, and rotary wheels.

Designed to IP67-rated specifications, the capacitive and metal touch switch panels offer protection against dirt, water and chemical ingress.

Metal touch switches are pressure activated, which prevents accidental actuation by user error or environmental factors. Fully compatible for use with gloves and styluses, metal touch switches are available with stainless steel, aluminum, and other metallic or non-metallic material overlays, and can feature embossed key or Braille designs.

Capacitive switches recognize when a conductive object, such as a finger, enters the field. Glass, metal and enamel-coated substrates plus tempered-glass, polycarbonate, polyester or acrylic overlays deliver streamlined easy-to-clean capacitive switch designs. Optional PEDOT-based capacitive switches make the transition to one-touch controls more economical and efficient.
